There was a historical novel and an Academy Award winning movie in the 50s
which had this version of the story. Both were titled LUST FOR LIFE. Our
media specialists were able to track down a video of the movie and my
beginning high school art students love it. Set design, locations, and make
up were handled in such a way that my students can identify certain scenes
as particular paintings.
Oh my goodness! I've exposed myself as a grandma art educator.
Beware...you may ask about trivia from the 40s that I may also know.
